Efficient Power Conversion (EPC) Expands Wide Pitch eGaN FET® Family Enabling High Current in Small Footprint

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.

Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC) announces the introduction of three eGaN FETs designed with a wider pitch connection layout. These products expand EPC’s family of “Relaxed Pitch” devices featuring a 1 mm ball pitch. The wider pitch allows for placement of additional and larger vias under the device to enable high current carrying capability despite the extremely small 2.6 mm x 4.6 mm footprint.

Compared to a state-of-the-art silicon power MOSFET with similar on-resistance, these products are much smaller and have many times superior switching performance. They are ideal for applications such as high frequency DC-DC converters, synchronous rectification in DC/DC and AC/DC converters, motor drives, and class-D audio.

About EPC

EPC is the leader in enhancement mode gallium nitride based power management devices and was the first to introduce enhancement-mode gallium-nitride-on-silicon (eGaN) FETs as power MOSFET replacements in applications such as DC-DC converters, wireless power transfer, envelope tracking, RF transmission, power inverters, remote sensing technology (LiDAR), and class-D audio amplifiers with device performance many times greater than the best silicon power MOSFETs.
